>>Would-Be Elderly Scammer Held in Lancaster County
(Reading, PA) -- A Reading man has been arrested after he attempted to scam a woman out of 15-thousand dollars. Engerbert Perez reportedly called an 82-year-old woman from Warwick Township on Tuesday, with a story that he was an attorney and that the woman's grandson needed cash bail. He told her that her grandson injured another party in a crash. It was after a second cash demand the woman sensed that she had been duped. Officers from the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department investigated and recovered her money. Perez is being held in Lancaster County Prison.
